Merseyside Police comment following sentencing of John Richard Cain after sentencing

MERSEYSIDE Police have confirmed that a 32 year old man was sentenced at Liverpool Crown Court, on Thursday, 19 March 2015, following a robbery on a 52 year old woman in Melling in October 2014. John Richard Cain of No Fixed Abode has been sentenced to 5 and a half years in prison plus an extended licence term of 3 years. Cain followed his 52 year old victim along Mount Road in Melling, on the evening of Monday, 20 October 2014, then attacked her from behind and stole her hand bag. He was arrested and subsequently charged with robbery and using threatening behaviour/words with intent to cause fear of unlawful violence. Detective Constable Suzanne Demomme said:- "Cain put his victim through a truly horrible ordeal, pulling her to the floor and dragging her along by her hair before finally stealing her handbag. An off duty Police Officer from Lancashire saw what happened and gave chase, but Cain literally escaped from his outer clothing and managed to get away. The incident was reported to the Police and Detectives from Sefton CID supported by neighbourhood officers immediately began an extensive investigation which led to Cain being arrested. In court the victim spoke of how the incident has changed her life and she has been left feeling violated, unable to sleep and constantly on edge. When she goes out, she now can't wait to get back home and is never on her own. These words clearly show how she has been affected and I hope the sentence will allow her to put what's happened behind her. I also hope it sends a very clear message to any other would-be robber who thinks about targeting lone women that the Police take these offences with the utmost seriousness and they will also be dealt with robustly by the courts."
